What Does a Quaker Parrot Eat?

September 4th, 2007

A quaker parrot’s diet should ideally consist of a basic food mix of equal parts of a good seed mix (many types of seeds suited for medium exotic birds) and a high-quality pellet food such as Zupreem or Kaytee Exact. For extra vitamins a supplement, such as Petamine egg food may be added, a little on top of the quaker parrot’s daily food mix.

Also essential to good nutritional health is a daily fresh supply of vegetables, such as lettuce, which may be served shredded, chopped or whole; grated carrot is a favorite among many birds and a quaker parrot is no exception. Fresh or dried fruits are also a good idea, stay away from fruits with artificial colors added as these can build up in their system and cause problems farther along.

Many quaker parrot owners offer their bird a cooked grain mix which many birds enjoy. There are many commercial grain mixes available, and many prefer to create their own mix more suited to their quaker’s needs.
